    Im a hero !!! Saved my brother from God !

    Im a hero !!! Saved my brother from God ! Well we was working on a pair of second floor chamber ( floor joist and floor boards ) and we was about 3/4's way finished and the wind was ****ing stupid at the side of our site there is nothing but farmers fields , so nothing to block us from the wind . He was just about to pick a floor board up when the wind did it for him then whilst the board ( which is 8ft by 2ft )was infront of him it knocked him about 5ft back then five foot down landing on the metal scaffolding ....he went from the pile of boards to the permiter scaffold

    He went down like he had just taken a shot gun to the chest feet up n head down , He landed on his back /neck then 7 more boards 1 by 1 came flying in his direction . I dove in front of him and took the brunt as he was in a pile on the floor we ended upin a pile with 8 floor boards and 2 broken joiners . I some how have walked away un bruised but the fall from the scaffolding has hurt his ribs possible cracked? and a sore ankle ! Needless to say that declared day over its just wern't safe to work ! There was nobody in a authority figure on site due to a meeting they was on , they should be fecking shot !
